depending on what you have inside ya pc at the moment, 1 hdd and 1 cd/dvd-rom drive, yes you can. there should be a second connector (slave) on the ribbon to ya present hdd. connect to that, set as slave, format and partition if ya wish. if ya not sure on what to do, search the web, there are plenty of good sites on how to install and partition hdd out there.

good luck

You should set up your new HD as a slave on the same tpae as your foirst HD - not on the same tape as your CD player. Better still, since your new HD is likely to have a better spec, use a partition manager to movre all the partitions from your old HD to the new one, then set up the new one as master and the old as slave.
